Aaron Wormus' Blog:
What's Wrong with PEAR?
August 04, 2006 @ 05:47:06

In his latest blog post, Aaron Wormus asks the PHP community exactly "what's wrong with PEAR?"

I didn't attend Theo's talk, so the only information that I got was from the blog entries and slides. I realize that this short presentation was humorous, but it still brings up some points that have been nagging at the back of my head for a while now.

The comment in question is part of the Six Reasons PHP Sucks lightning talk.

The comment jokes about the quality of PEAR code. OF course, as Aaron notes, these types of comments aren't anythng new. The real issue at stake is that people don't understand PEAR. To help further the cause behind this (in)famous set of libraries, he's written an article for php|architect to dispell some of the myths.

I would like to dedicate this blog entry to people who think that PEAR does suck, and open up the discussion to what it is exactly that sucks. PEAR has issues, but I truly believe that most of the trash talking that is done is mainly due to the ignorance. So please, if you have issues, whether technical or package specific feel free to vent here.
